We definitely have work to do. Portaudio is the ONLY thing I can get to work the PS3 sound system but not in gnuradio.

The pieces in the bin directory for testing portaudio that open the sink only work. I can produce tones, hundreds of tones, do latency tests, etc.

gr-audio-XXX fails in all cases, including gr-audio-portaudio.

I do not believe this is a python issue but I am unsure. The error message is a bit strange.

If you download the svn for portaudio, and do configure; make; sudo make install, it puts the portaudio-2.0.pc in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig unless you specify another prefix. Portaudio is working on the ps3 and the files in bin that begin patest_(produce a sinusoid of some type) make tones and work.

     is now found by PS3 running Yellow Dog Linux.  At some time in the
past two weeks while I was running around,  I did an update (after Terra
finally got my password fixed) and the sound system is found. I compiled
and installed PortAudio and pa_devs finds the device and all of the test
programs that are using only output work perfectly.
Bob, are you using gr-audio-portaudio? I've installed portaudio from yum on
FC6, but it's only on version 18 while the GR configure script is trying to
find version 19. On top of that, when I installed version 19, there is no
portaudio.pc file for pkg-config to look at.

I'm sure this is all due to ignorance on my part with using portaudio


Tom, I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure he's using ALSA.
